Goodbye A1 Comms Business, Hello Yappl

A1 Comms Business has rebranded to Yappl. Whether you’re an existing customer or a new one, you might be wondering how this changes things.

Yes, the name is different, but our mission remains the same – to make your business communications and connectivity seamless, efficient, and effective.

We’re excited about where we’re going, so we wanted to share some of the thinking behind it and explain what it means for you, and us.


A1 Comms Business becomes Yappl, but what has changed?


We’ve come a long way since the humble beginnings of a mobile phone shop opened by our CEO, Paul Sisson, in Alfreton in 1997.

Over many years, we’ve become a trusted partner to businesses all over the UK, helping them to get connected, stay connected, and grow together.

This next step in our journey – our rebrand to Yappl – is all about reflecting our approach and identity as a business. We’re modern, open, and knowledgeable, and just as comfortable talking about business as we are technology.

In business jargon, we’re solutions focussed. But what that really means is, we want to understand your business and its ambitions. This helps us to make sure you get the perfect partner, the right services, and the best equipment.

By rebranding to Yappl, we also want to better express our values:

  • Ambitious – to continue to develop our solutions, as people and as a business, striving for success.
  • Innovative – to put great ideas into practice, be commercially creative and find new ways of working.
  • Knowledgeable – not behind the times, or even just up to speed, we’re always ahead of the curve.
  • Trusted – we’ll get the basics right, staying secure and compliant, calling out risks and going the extra mile with support.


We’re now Yappl, but some things won’t change.


While the Yappl rebrand helps us to better reflect where we are as a business, it’s important to reiterate that some things won’t change.

Firstly, you’ll still receive great service, the best products, competitive prices and outstanding support – all things our customers have come to expect from A1 Comms Business.

This includes:

Business Mobiles

Helping you to work securely on the move with a variety of business mobile handsets and data plans from a range of partners and network providers.

Business Broadband

Fast, flexible, and dependable broadband that helps keep your business better connected. From small business to enterprise, ADSL to full fibre, 5G and more.

Unified Comms

We’ll help you to empower your teams to work effectively, no matter how they choose to communicate, by seamlessly integrating comms for flexible working.

IT Services

We can help your business implement new technology and grow securely, with flexible and scalable IT support services tailored to your needs.


So, in a nutshell, we’re ready for the next part of our journey as Yappl, and you should expect us to deliver everything we did as A1 Comms Business, and more!

If you’re an existing customer, the brand change won’t have any impact on you at all. Enquiries from mobile customers can be sent through to [email protected] and broadband, connectivity and IT service customers can send any queries through to [email protected].
